UF Health- A Great Place to Work
Significant Jump on Forbes America’s Best Employers List
For the second year in a row, UF Health made the Forbes list of America’s Best Employers, with UF Health rising nine spots from last year to No. 16 among all health-care providers and UF ranking No. 13 among public universities in the survey of workers nationwide. UF Health came in at No. 89 on the list of the top 500 companies, up significantly from No. 154 last year.
Working with online statistics provider Statista, Forbes asked more than 30,000 U.S. workers employed by companies with more than 5,000 staff members to determine, on a scale of zero to 10, how likely they were to recommend their employer to someone else. Forbes also asked workers how they feel about other employers in their industry.
